    In an attempt to get off the topic of whether Pikachu should have evolved or not . . .

    I heard that Team Rocket tried to steal Ash's Thunderstone so that he couldn't use it to evolve Pikachu, and they had it at the end of the episode . . .

    That would mean that one of Team Rocket's thefts actually SUCCEEDED! I believe this is the actual first time they had something they tried to steal at the end of an episode (that wasn't a two-parter). This is AMAZING. The writers finally broke the pattern Team Rocket followed for 500 episodes! Will wonders never cease . . . First Jessie winning a contest, and now this!

    I really hope they did get the Thunderstone in a theft . . . I've been hoping the writers would do something like this one of these days, but despaired that they ever would. Anything can happen in Diamond and Pearl indeed.
    PLEASE feed Farfetch'd sour (yellow) berries!

    *clap clap clap* Yippee. Good for them. They deserve a trophy.

    Back on topic.

    I think it would have been good for Pikachu to evolve. It's a shame they stole the Thunderstone. Does anyone think he'll get it back?

    I want to say....This episode is the best one yet in DP. Whoever says this episode is pointless is completely dim witted.

    In your face whoever thought Pikachu is loosing personality and never will gain again (Sorry, couldn't resist it ).

    I can never ever ever express my gratitude properly to the writers... such a wonderful episode. Especially the hospital part.

    It was necessary for newer fans (like a lot of you have said) and was also necessary for the crazy people who thought Pikachu would evolve.

    The 'sorta recap of the Lt. Surge episode' was essential too, and was really nostalogic.

    It annoys me so much that some people chant 'stop the stupid fillers like this! Give us training episodes!' This episode has done a lot of character development of Ash and Pikachu. I didn't expect it to be this much.

    Well, thats all I can say now.

    It would be nice if TR caught something that could evolve with a Thunderstone.

    Good episode overall. Brings back old memories, and they even showed back a portion of the episode of the one in season 1. Paul's unexpected appearance was a plus also.

    raichu was so cute + cool in this episode ^_^

    There's a flame that leads our souls astray
    No one's safe from its tender touch of pain

    And every day it's looking for new slaves
    To celebrate the beauty of the grave


    We are like the living dead
    Sacrificing all we have

    For a frozen heart and a soul on fire
    We are like the living dead

    Craving for deliverance
    With a frozen heart and a soul on fire

    If we go with 'TR has a Thunderstone so one of them will capture a pokemon that evolves through Thunderstone' I think eevee is the most possible candidate for Jessie. It can be found in Sinnoh in the wild, and Jolteon may put up a ravalry with Pikachu.

    But again the writers may not give her a Jolteon, its not a sinnoh pokemon

    Edit: Finally the orange league!! Yay!

    Plus I don't think the writers would like seeing Jolteon being blasted of everytime.

    Jolteon doesn't have to be blasted of everytime. Did Dustox blasted of every time?

    Plus, Jolteon would do great in contests.

    they actually had the same thing with Buizel after getting hit by a Flash Cannon when Dawn was battling Lucian in the episode "An Elite Meet and Greet"

    Personally, I don't think either of them would suit Jessie.

    Err... Yeah. They're definitely not the first choice if you think about Jessie's next capture. But a lot of us couldn't even think how a Gligar/Gliscor would suit Ash. But now they made it suit him. So, they may do the same with Jessie somehow.

    Its still really unlikely I guess. If Jessie captures a Kanto pokemon now, when will she capture Sinnoh pokemon? Its too late already....

    the writers could re visit previous storylines and have james trade the thunderstone for a magikarp . seriously, i think the thunderstone will be forgotten, just to prove a point that pikachu will never evolve.

    Well, I'm not giving up until I see that Thunderstone fall off the face of the earth.

    I don't get why people are so upset over these episodes, sure, they are blatant rip-offs from earlier episodes, but they are GOOD ripoffs from GOOD episodes. I'm glad that they decided to re-mention why Pikachu wont evolve for younger (as well as stupid) fans why Pikachu wont evolve. My god, it's annoying to hear people whine about it.

    Do we REALLY need to see James anger a Magikarp into evolving AGAIN?

    I'm not a fan of the rat but loved this episode. Every moment of it.

    It's one of those episodes where they make everything seem so real. When they have the goal to put emotion in an episode they do it well. This is something that happened not only in this one but in the Dustox episode too.

    However I did not understand Paul in this episode. He was not needed. It was kinda forced especially when he appeared out of nowhere and with no reason.
